The café seems to take good advantage of it's location; it is the only option near Dolmabahce palace. The service was slow and the staff looked quite uninterested in their job. The food was more like fast food. The only place in Istanbul we experienced...More

In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for
space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green
